Question about Plumbing
If you did manage to run enough water to dry the well, it should only be temporary, until enough groundwater flows back to your well. This should only take maybe an hour and shouldn't depend on frequent rain. If your well did respond to rain, your well would be quickly contaminated. However, there could be other problems. If you have the type of well where the pump is located down in the ground, and your water pressure doesn't come back soon, then you have a problem in that the pump is not working. If you have a "shallow well" type of pump, where the pump is located above ground (in your basement, or under the house) then the pump may have lost it's prime. A shallow-well pump needs the pump to be full of water before it can pump the water from the well.

You need better control the Well Pump
Install an advance digital controller on the Pump motor and do better monitoring.
Some modern Digital controllers are very sophisticated and provide a Dry-Well recovery automatically, by constant monitoring a water level and do not dry your well intentionally.
